Paris, Je t'aime

Still stuck on memories of my last trip to Europe. I experienced lots of things. I kept the best parts and learned from the bad ones. Every trip will definitely give you something to ponder. Since each country has its own specialty therefore I plan to write several different posts about this memorable journey. 
When Indonesian talk about Europe trip, Paris will be the center of the destination. Yes, most of Indonesian even associate Europe with Paris. No wonder that Indonesian prefer to go to West Europe (since Paris is there) instead of East Europe (Austria, Slovakia, Prague, etc) that actually also has many beautiful places.

Paris that morning was really wet. Although it's already March but it turned out that the weather was still really cold. In fact I still saw some snow in Netherland and Germany. No wonder if the temperature could go down to 2 Celcius degree combined with strong wind and rain. Freezing cold. But that day, since the excitement was really high to witness one of the best West European icons so we could simply beat the rain and cold weather. 

We walked along the area. Amazed to see the old buildings that have been there for ages and how they have long history for each of them. Curious about the Louvre Museum but the queuing was quite long and the museum itself is HUGE --it's said that you can spend three days to explore all parts of the museum and its great collection-- then I decided to just see the place from outside. 

Ended the Paris trip by visiting its popular shopping centers such as Galeries Lafayette and Champ Elysees (and stunned for its luxurious design and...price, hahaha) but I also dropped by at a chic outlet, La Valle Village, they offered branded items with affordable price. You can have a good discount and tax refund. I will write about these shopping experiences in a different post. 

We stayed in Kyriad Torcy Hotel, Torcy, France. An old hotel but I loved it since the location is next to Carrefour so I could buy lots of necessary things with good price such as things to cook (my friend brought a magic jar so we could always have rice, mie gelas or indomie and chocolate for the souvenirs). One of the ways to manage your expenses.
